Single Shuttle Split Ring Headband
Matthew Takeda came up with this novel way of making a single shuttle split ring. The technique is shared with his permission on Bina Madden's Paradise Treasures site: http://www.paradisetreasures.com/pdf/takedasssr.pdf
What may not be clear in the diagram, is how to close the ring. (at least I was missing it...) I have uploaded a video to YouTube to explain this.
The FREE! pattern for my floral headband using this technique can be found on my website:
